| Jags sign rookie WR Marqise Lee|
2nd rounder inks four-year deal
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Jul 16, 8:51 pm
|Lee, the Jaguars’ first second-round selection (No. 39 overall), will return to Jacksonville on Friday and sign the deal.
Per the NFL’s slotting system, Lee’s contract is expected to be worth $5,174,016 and include a $2,082,924 signing bonus and a first-year salary cap number of $940,731.
FFToday's Take: An athletic receiver from USC, Marqise Lee missed most of OTAs with a bum ankle. He represents part of the young core Jacksonville is trying to build around so getting him signed and in camp on time was imperative for a team in need of a new offensive identity. Lee could be in the mix to start but faces competition at the position where Ace Sanders and fellow rookie Allen Robinson are also competing.

Shorts not expected to practice all week

FFToday's Take: Head coach Gus Bradley has stated that Shorts won't practice at all this week. Shorts' injury history is becoming lengthy and is the main reason his ADP is hovering around Round 10 in 12-team re-draft leagues. He should be ready to participate in training camp.

Shorts, Sanders and both rookies nursing injuries

|With seven of the 11 receivers — including veteran Cecil Shorts and second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson — out with various ailments, the group consisted of Kerry Taylor and three players who’ve yet to appear in a regular-season NFL game. Taylor and the other three weren’t drafted. (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Both rookies, Lee (ankle) and Robinson (hamstring) are not expected to participate in Monday's OTA session. Ace Sanders is also missing time due to a hamstring injury while Shorts is sitting out with a calf injury. "I’ll try to go back there Monday, but it’s out of my control. It’s the time of year to kind of chill,” Shorts said. "No need to rush it."
| Jags rookie WRs sidelined with injuries|
Lee day-to-day, Robinson could miss rest of offseason

|Jaguars second-round receivers Allen Robinson and Marqise Lee sat out the team’s organized team activity workout today because of injuries.
Lee is day to day with an ankle injury sustained last week - he did side-field work and did not seem to be bothered by his wrist injury (also last week). Robinson, though, could be out for the rest of the off-season program after being injured last Wednesday. (Florida Times-Union)|
FFToday's Take: Yahoo Sports reported last week that Robinson was running behind Cecil Shorts at "X" (split end) while Lee was spending most of his time at "Z" (flanker), so Robinson's redraft stock had already taken a sizable hit before this news that he could miss the rest of the offseason. Lee's injury does not sound overly serious and he should be expected to enter training camp as the starter opposite Shorts.
